Rupert helps local school children

Rupert helps local school childrenRupert the Donkey this year (2011) visited Jessons Church of England primary school in Dudley to help over 150 children learn about Palm Sunday and Easter.

As part of their curriculum focus on Religious Education the children were learning about Palm Sunday and Rupert went along to show them a donkey, like the one Jesus would have ridden into Jerusalem.

Many of the children had never seen a donkey before and had made Palm leaves which they waved as Rupert walked past them.
